Kids with mental health challenges eventually grow up and become adults. So how do caregivers and communities help them as they make this major transition? And, since many psychological conditions begin in early adulthood – how can parents, friends and even, colleges, help them understand and learn to manage their own mental health?

In-studio guests: Barry Andres, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Clinical Manager of the Child and Adolescent Outpatient Department at Anchorage Community Mental Health Services where one division, the Transitional Aged Youth Program, helps young people move from one form of care to another and Georgia DeKeyser, a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and the Associate Director of the University of Alaska Anchorage Student Health and Counseling Center.
